The Mandoo, Strathfield

Do you ever accept bad advice because you’re desperate for human interaction and the only people near you are super scummy and not very clever? Or maybe you’re just an eighteen year old at a club who has just angered his girlfriend who just needed a few tips to calm your significant other down? I […]

You can always tell how badly your friends have screwed up just by observing the size of the bouquets they were purchasing after work. Sure, some were being proactive and buying nice flowers for the Hell of it but few people splash out for $120 rose collections on random Wednesdays. I once saw a buddy of mine splash […]

Hong Kong Bing Sutt, Burwood

My trip to Hong Kong last year was enlightening in more ways than one. It was really cool being somewhere in which I wasn’t the minority, the ads were designed to cater to me and I was considered taller than the average person. I ate well, drank well and slept like a baby even if […]

Superior Burger, Wakeley

I wake up early so I can take a nap before noon then wake up and feel like I have another glorious weekend day ahead of me. Does that make sense? Have my last 17 blog posts made any sense whatsoever? However, I am more than willing to forego a nap if there is great […]

Belly Bao, CBD

A long time ago, in a galaxy that much resembles our own; a group of high school boys sat around a table at a Vietnamese restaurants. The boys meant well but were having an incredibly vulgar conversation about girls. Let’s present a highly edited version that won’t get me thrown out of the community: Boy […]

Olio Kensington Street, Chippendale

One movie meme that refuses to die is how Titanic (the James Cameron classic that came out TWENTY YEARS AGO) ended. Let me refresh your memory: the Titanic has hit an iceberg and people are frantically evacuating the not-so-small boating accident. Our main characters played by Leo Dicaprio and Kate Winslet are whispering sweet nothings to each […]

I loved a Japanese girl once. But enough about Sailor Moon. There was another Japanese girl that I sort of, kinda liked as well. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out but I thought I would use my blog’s real estate to say this. Toko,noma-tter what happens to our lives from here on out; I’ll always think […]

Hills Bros, Martin Place

One thing my high school teachers always told me was to enjoy the friendshps I had as time has a way of splitting even the closest of teenage friends. We refused to believe it at the time but father time is relentless and undefeated. However, there are some friends that don’t fade into old photos […]

LuMi Bar & Dining, Pyrmont

What’s the weirdest punishment you’ve ever received from a teacher? I’ve been forced to sit in the corner, put my hands on my head whilst singing the national anthem and even had to come up with a written statement to stupid Mary for calling her a peasant (she stole my lunchbox, I was more than […]

Sushi Daiwa, Tsukiji

Tsukiji fish markets are one of those things that appear on almost every tourists’ itinerary when they visit Japan for the first time usually wedged between geisha hunting, visiting robot restaurants and using a toilet that cleans and dries your booty after your business. Fresh sashimi, Japanese street food and snacks adorn every nook and […]

Kichi Kichi, Kyoto

Do we have any Jessica Jones fans in the house? No? God damn it, guys. Stop focussing on the chill part of Netflix and Chill and spend some time on the Netflix part. I’ll do my best to not spoil anything but one of the characters on the show talks about a foreign emotion called […]

Devon at Barangaroo

If you really want to, you’ll be able to find something to complain about. I’m getting fat. I’ve lost all of my friends. My name rhymes with male genitalia. I’m not making enough money. It’s really easy to complain, but it’s a lot harder to make things better. Figuring out how to stop being a […]
